MakoMedia was commissioned to create a film that highlighted the benefits of the fantastic ‘Teens & Toddlers‘ program in Halton.
Teens & Toddlers was founded in 2001 to address the social exclusion of young people. They now run a range of programmes focused on inspiring young people to achieve the skills, qualifications and self belief they need to succeed in school, work and life.
They address the issues that lead young people to believe that dropping out and risky behaviour are their only options to escape poverty. These issues include no hope for the future, low self esteem, low educational attainment/disengagement from education, the breakdown of the family, a lack of role models and the temptations of drugs, alcohol and teen pregnancy.
Teens & Toddlers aims to inspire young people to achieve the skills, qualifications and self belief they need to succeed in education, work and life. Their vision is a society where all young people feel valued, included and inspired to contribute to their communities.
The young people they help are often poor, from broken homes and disengaged from school. With limited life skills, they despair about their chances of gaining a good education, finding work and achieving their dreams. They are also at high risk of crime, drugs and teenage pregnancy, which has a major impact on their communities.
